The workshop trained the participants how to use the program, categorize types of usage that suit their needs. Generative AI at present is composed of: Chat GPT – developed by OpenAI, Bard – developed by Google, Bing – developed by Microsoft, and Alisa – developed by Glory Forever PCL. They enable complete learning experiences, are fast, up to date, time-saving, and train users the skills necessary for the 21st Century.
“This Workshop does not only prepare students and personnel to use Generative AI, but it also offers a good chance to integrate modern technology with the learning process for developing necessary skills for the 21st Century.”
